People fell from plane at Kabul airport

Why is a T-shirt featuring Afghans falling from a plane controversial?

Chaos at Kabul Airport

BUY YOURS HERE if you still want to buy this shirt, this shirt do not public anymore and not for haters.

These days, the video of two people falling from the plane in Kabul, Afghanistan has gone viral and dominated the Internet. You’ll find a lot of articles relating to the Kabul incident on online news sites and social media. 

The Taliban took control of Afghanistan two weeks before the U.S. was set to complete its troop withdrawal after nearly two decades. 

Militants entered the presidential palace in Kabul hours after former President Ashraf Ghani left the country on August 15. In the previous week, many of Afghanistan’s large cities fell to the insurgents with almost no resistance.

The Taliban’s resurgence coincides with the withdrawal of US troops, which raises concerns for those who used to work for the US government. Though the Taliban have stated that there will be no bloodbath, they are still in fear. 

On the day after the Taliban took over, hundreds of people flocked to the tarmac at Kabul International Airport, desperately searching for a way out of Afghanistan. Some managed to evacuate the city; Others kept trying.

They even beat each other to get a seat on the place to flee to America. In some cases, they jumped on the plane stupidly and thoughtlessly, seriously lacking in awareness, and of course, they fell to death. 

This is considered a hot issue that almost all people worldwide are concerned about. It has come as a shock to everyone around the world and quickly gone viral on online newspapers and media channels. Either way, it’s pretty horrifying for anyone to witness someone falling from a plane. 

With such shocking news, it comes as no surprise when various online newspapers quickly mention the incident. However, many online newspapers condemn us for selling this t-shirt to make money. They bring news to readers to update the situation in the fastest way. Each reader’s view is profitable for them. In a way, are they also making money on deaths? What’s the difference between online newspapers that make money on those views with us? It’s all about serving the customer’s needs.

That’s so ridiculous! One party looks innocent while the other one is considered to be a criminal and heartless to make money on people’s death.

Why do we sell this shirt? 

We sell what people want and what people care about. Who likes what, we sell that as long as it doesn’t break the law. We sell based on the customer’s needs and tastes. That’s why we decided to create this shirt. However, it’s ridiculous that some people who don’t like the shirt seem to be professional mourners for the bad guys in the case in Kabul. 

Many people even emailed me with content comparing the September 11 attack with that incident in Kabul.  They said that we were cold-blooded and sarcastic about why we didn’t make shirts about the 9/11 attack and people falling from the Twin Towers and dying in desperation?

How ironic! Those who represent justice and abundant love spread compassion everywhere, grant for the stupid, the childish, and the cowardly. They are willing to combine two cases with two characteristics that have no similarities at all into one. And they take that as an excuse to justify the so-called “justice” that they are covering themselves. 

How amazing! We actually made some shirts for the 11/9 event as you want. But unfortunately, those shirts are about commemorating firefighters, soldiers, doctors, police, many other courageous first responders who risked their own lives to save others, or victims who were lost on that day. They deserve to be remembered and cherished. 

Think about it? One side is terrorized and the incident is unpredictable. Take back to September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic Islamist extremist group al Qaeda hijacked four commercial airplanes and carried out suicide attacks on targets in the United States. The hijackers intentionally flew two of the planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, and a third into the Pentagon, and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people died during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 

On September 11, the victims even had no opportunity to fight for their own lives. Everything happened too fast. While the incident of two people falling from a plane in Kabul is their pre-selected choice. They totally could have a better option.  It’s basic knowledge. Has anyone left died yet? NO ONE! Only idiots clinging to the plane to death! And do you sympathize with the fools? Do you argue that there are 17-year-olds?  Aren’t 17-year-olds aware enough? Or for you, 18 years old is old enough to be aware of what should and shouldn’t be done?

So, don’t bring up the September 11 attack to make a joke. Some people had a joke with a satirical implication that why we don’t make shirts about the September 11 attack. It’s very stupid. 

Fighting for freedom and happiness as well as empathy for others, but being willing to curse other people and their families to die, is it called the struggle or just to satisfy their own animality? We need empathy in the right place, at the same time, not irrational sentiment. 

For the people who died in Afghanistan, as well as the victims of war during the past 20 years, it is more reasonable to feel compassion for them. But why during the past 20 years has the media been superficially reporting? Strangely, who among those who condemn selling the shirt used to mourn for those unfortunate victims? 

Now, just because of the stupid actions of a few people, the whole world seems to become a crowd effect. Is it any different from a viral synergy? It’s obvious that people have a tendency to follow trends. The first 1-2 days, they cursed, cried, and felt sympathy. But after 1-2 days, they seemed to forget it. That’s so nonsense! 

We know that everything has 2 sides and so do the people, as well as the country, which I mention here in America. Despite some of its weaknesses, America does have some cherished values and one of them is the freedom of speech, where people can freely express their feelings, opinions, hate, or love anything they want, without censorship, interference, and restraint by the government. So, as said, for one situation, one issue, this one will love and support you, but that one doesn’t. You can’t please everybody! 

If you have deeper thinking about this case of 2 Afghanistan people falling from the airplane, some of us may feel heartbroken and empathetic with the horrifying death of them, but some others may see it as a crime, to blame they lost of control, and don’t ever support this dangerous action, which comes from doing things thoughtlessly. 

Just flashback the history of Vietnam in 1975, we have something in common. Mostly, those who fled, and got away from the country, usually have the bad habit called “blaming”. The impulse to blame is deeply human. When people hurt us, mistakes get made, or relationships between people and people, country, and country – reach a conflict, our minds resort to a clever way of avoiding the psychological pain created by these negative events. Then they blame the situation and haven’t looked at themselves whether it’s right or wrong. 

They’re cowardly, vulnerable, feeble, and always looking forward to America! Isn’t it enough for 20 years? Then how long does it take for America to “protect” the infant country Afghanistan and the Afghans – the newborn generation who has never grown up. So the question is: Until when the Afghans independently live and control their own lives, and claim their own freedom and pride?

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. Some may blame Americans for not doing more plans for the evacuation and withdrawal, which has been marked by scenes of violence and chaos as thousands attempted to flee while the Taliban advanced. 

In our hearts, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free. Happiness and freedom are not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions. That is the slogan “never give up”, fight for freedom till the end by themselves. 

They cover and protect you for some periods of your life, it doesn’t mean they have to take responsibility for the rest of your life. You know what I mean, right?

It also goes without saying that respect yourself before earning the respect of people, that respect comes from the way we live and even the way we die. Isn’t it respectful when living at the mercy of others? 

So, when we decide to sell this shirt, and care about people’s feelings or please everyone, we think that we should have removed it from the store. Those people who are sympathetic and heartbroken with the airplane disaster will burst into happiness and continue to exult if the shirts no longer exist. 

Why? Because they think that they are justice, they are winners, they stand up for their rights.

They just care for themselves and how great they feel when winning the game called “justice”, and they’ll not give a thing about others, with the thought: They stand up for the rights, they’re the wonders of the world. 

Then, it just needs to be something more interesting and new, like Iron Man turning into Bronze Man, or the Avengers turning into Avaners Band going live shows around the world, you’ll immediately forget the “victims” you feel sorry for. Your love is the viral effect. Believe me, you guys are real fakes, putting on the clothes of justice on the internet, claiming to be right. End! No more!

Stop hurting others just to satisfy you. 

In conclusion, instead of cursing the shirt, why don’t you have a more open view? We’re also humans. We also feel sad and depressed when some people have a wrong view of us. The shirt reflecting the current situation in Afghanistan is a way for Afghanistan habitants to recognize and fight for freedom for themselves as well as their country.
